Fodor's Review

This classy lodge combines understated modern elegance with vibrant African colors. High, white, open-raftered, wooden ceilings top wood paneled walls, and the furnishings complement and enhance the views outside the huge windows and viewing decks. Velvet cushions and rugs echo the African sky at dawn, and the pillars of rough-hewn rock recall the kopjes that dot the reserve. Your bedroom may qualify as one of the biggest you will ever sleep in. Keep the curtains facing your king-size bed open at night so that you're woken by a dazzling sunrise. Chill by the rim-flow lodge pool, or just hang out at your private plunge pool with only the birds and the sounds of the wilderness to keep you company. You'll dine in a big airy dining room with an interactive kitchen or on the deck beneath the trees, looking out over the undulating hills and valleys of the reserve. If you find time, watch DVDs or read in the library or games room, or just sit on your massive wraparound deck and listen to the silence.
